Golf and chocolate -Seaton centenarian’s long life recipe

A family party with champagne and cake are amongst the highlights of Lesley Randall’s special day

A PASSION for golf – and chocolate – are the recipe for a long life, according to Seaton’s newest 100-year-old.

Lesley Randall celebrated her special birthday with family and friends at Netherhayes Residential Home, yesterday (Wednesday).

A card from The Queen, a glass of champagne and a performance by local singing duo Pete and Maxine were amongst the highlights of her special day.

And a slice of her favourite chocolate cake – made by cooks Donna Anning and Debbie Chown - also proved a big hit.
